  • Communities receive grants based on amounts recycled in the Green curbside cans.    In 2016 we will receive $1,030 for recycling 64.9 tons.  We purchased 4 chairs for the meeting room, a rubber mat for the garage, recycled paper products for the office & rest rooms, 2 letter sorters, cleaning rags, mop heads & a door mat. Only 2 townships recycled less than we did - Huntington & Rochester.  Most Townships collected almost double our amount even those of similar size.


  • In 2015 we received $1,120.34 for 57.3 Tons recycled in 2014.  This year we purchased a recycled cabinet & a bookshelf for the office and some recycled copy paper, info holders, folders, toilet tissue, and a recycle container for the 303 hall


  • All items must meet EPA standards & be approved by the county before being purchased.  We  received $252.38 in 2014 for 17.4 tons recycled in 2013.  This is partly due to not being credited with all our residents recycling.  Other townships benefited from our varied addresses.  We think this has been corrected.  We purchased a recycled white board for the fire dept. 


  • We received $952.44 in 2013 for 61.5 tons recycled in 2012.  We purchased 2 high chairs for the recycle bldg., a new sign for Court St. and paper products for the restrooms & office-all of at least 30% post consumer recycled content.    


  • In 2012 Camden received $1,100 for 62 tons recycled in 2011.   Purchased recycled signs for the Cemetery. The funds can only be used for of recycled items & supplies. 
  • They are no longer counting the paper bins at the Recycle Bldg. in our totals.
